Tim Sherwood reveals Aston Villa might have to let Christian Benteke leave because of a buy-out clause in his contract.
Tim Sherwood has revealed Aston Villa might have no choice but to let Christian Benteke leave this summer because of a buy-out clause in his contract.
Jay Rodriguez has attracted interest from a host of Premier League clubs after an impressive season for Burnley.
The England Under-21 striker, who has netted 21 goals this campaign, has been linked with moves to Fulham, Newcastle, Bolton, Norwich and newly-promoted Southampton.
And former Burnley player Ade Akinbiyi, Rodriguez's mentor at Turf Moor, admits the 22-year-old is unlikely to stay with the Clarets.
"It doesn't look like Burnley will be able to keep hold of him," Akinbiyi said.
"A lot of clubs are interested and you can understand why. Jay is a decent player and can play at the top level.
"He has a year left to go on his contract but I'm sure they will look at all the different offers and see where it goes from then."
